Screening at The Korea Society

2009/07/09 Source

The Korea Society's monthly Classic Movie Night series of films set during the period of Japanese occupation will continue next Thursday, July 16th, 2009 at 6:30 PM with this the oldest Korean talkie film by director Yang Ju-nam.

"Hurrah! For Freedom"
Director: Choi In-gyu
Starring Jeon Chang-keun and Yu Gye-seon
51 minutes (1946)
Korean with English Subtitles

Choi Han-joong escapes from a Japanese prison where he has been held for his pro-independence activities. He finds refuge in the home of an attractive young nurse but where do her loyalties lie? Hurrah! For Freedom was released shortly after the August 15 liberation, but the surviving print represents only a part of director Choi In-gyu's original vision. Government censors substantially edited the re-release print in the 1970s, leaving a shorter film and hints of the artistic achievement he would achieve in later films like Homeless Angel.

"Sweet Dream"
Director: Yang Ju-nam
Starring Jo Taek-won, Mun Ye-bong
46 minutes (1936)
Korean with English Subtitles

As Korean cinema's first "talkie", "Sweet Dream" nearly left audiences speechless with its scandalous melodrama about a wife who abandons her family to live with another man.

When: Thursday, July 16 at 6:30 PM
Where: The Korea Society
8th Floor, 950 Third Avenue, New York, NY 10022

Join us each month for Classic Movie Night, and screenings are followed by a brief lecture and Q & A. Light refreshments will be served.
